USA: 46 lb Massachusetts Record Carp
Angler, Shane Felch of Shrewsbury, and his friend Devon DuBois were grinning from ear to ear. I snapped a couple of images in the office as more biologists clattered down the hall to see the big fish. This carp, taken from Lake Quinsigamond in Shrewsbury, weighed a staggering 46 pounds, 5 ounces, breaking the 1993 state carp record of 44 pounds 2 ounces set by Roger Pyzocha with a fish he caught on the Connecticut River.
